Check In #1

Here is the first check in post, mirrored on our Tumblr.

This is an optional activity, with no deadlines. Answer now, answer later, or skip it completely.



No matter what kind of fanwork you're planning on creating for this challenge, at the heart of it is a story that you want to tell. And until you have an idea of what that story is, it's hard find the inspiration and creativity to start on your fanwork.

So that's the first step. Think about the story you want to tell. It can be detailed and specific (I want FOB as werewolves!) or more general (I want band-as-chosen-family FEELS!) You can tell more than one story, combining them into a sticky sweet concoction of trope-y goodness. You can have a theme, a idée fixe, a narrative kink.

Comment to this post, or reblog on Tumblr, and:

1. tell us what your favorite color is
2. tell us a little bit about the story (or stories, if you haven't settled on just one) you want to tell
3. comment to someone else's comment and cheer them on

You're not being graded; there is no wrong answer, because all answers are right.

Let's kickstart our creativity!

1. green and black.

2. I love scifi, and The Force Awakens has *ahem* reawakened a lot of scifi feels. I’ve always wanted a good space opera bandom AU, and since no one has written it for me yet…so yeah, a vaguely Star Wars-ish bandom AU. That’s the story I want to tell. :D

I'd LOVE to see a space opera by you. You're great at writing science and I'd love to see that in a vaguely Star Wars-type setting.

1. I have a LOT of favorite colors. Red, blue, green, and black are what make up most of my wardrobe but I'm also fond of purple and gray/silver.

2. It's basically gonna be Star Trek with corsets and canes because I want my future to have a Victorian aesthetic. And NOT STEAM PUNK. Steam is a highly inefficient power source for intergalactic travel. There's alien planets and poly relationships and Gerard is befriended by a strange creature that seems to be part cat, part ferret, and part Gila monster.

Woooo spacepunk! (Starpunk? Spacedragonpunk.) This sounds really cool and you can totally do it!

Ngl, the first thing I thought when reading "part cat, part ferret, and part Gila monster" was "Lola?!" but I guess they're a bit too fuzzy to be part gila monster. P:

1. My favorite color is blue.

2. My story is one I've been mulling around since The Breakup. It started out as my coping method for losing MCR and is now becoming a story about ideas and how other people interpret/misinterpret/bastardize them. Also post-apocalyptic, because that's my thing, I guess?

I actually want to know if any of you think this sounds like a good story idea because I'm nervous about how it will be received.

You can never go wrong with post-apocalyptic. :)

And from what you've written here, the story sounds like it'd be fascinating.

1. My favorite colors are bright blues and dark greens. Unless you mean to art with also and then it expands to include rich purples, deep reds, and smokey blacks.

2. I can't decide what story I want to tell. I have several ideas I've never finished for previous years of this challenge. The forerunner is an epic of about 60-70k if I can finish it. I just don't know if anyone's going to care..or even follow it because it's if Sliders met a dark quest fantasy au almost in the veins of the dark tower. (and since I've been prolific in aus over the years, most of the alternate worlds visited are glimpses at places I've already built.) I'm just worried that if I decide to finish people will get lost even if I'm mostly only using secondary characters from those aus or just the landscape. It's being treated like any episode of Sliders where there's enough info to flesh out the world but still a teaser hinting at more that could exist.

The alternatives are 1 a broody paranormal-gifts drama about what happens when an empath and a post-cog who consult with law enforcement have their work brought to their doorstep and how they deal with the fallout of not being able to cope with the after-effects. Throw in an unbalanced society that doesn't LIKE the gifted and you basically have that.

2 Something modern magic/urban magic with minor time travel and someone who can see ghosts. I have NOTHING else yet...not even a plot but something COULD be there.

I'm just curious what people would like to see.

Holy shit these all sound fucking awesome! Oh man it's hard to narrow it down. I'd say go with the first or the second one since the third one with the time travel and ghosts seems the least developed. Though really I would read any one of the three!

1. It flips between black and purple.

2. I'm a bit torn atm. OTOH, there's the magical modern arranged marriage AU that's so terribly indulgent it's pretty much idfic/drawerfic.

OTOH, there's the magical matchmaking agency AU that I've been thinking about for literal years. Could this be the year I not only finish it and post it?

1. My favorite color is green. Usually a bright Kelly Green.
2. I'm 2100 words into a Spencer Smith story. Post leaving Panic! and right as Desth of a Bachelor comes out. There's fluff and chosen family and a dog rescue and Dewees even.
But if I hit a terrible wall or realize that it's only a 15k story, I've picked out a story to podfic. \0/

1) Oranges and reds and purples and magentas and hot pinks! Though blues and greens can also be nice. And I've got nothing against black. Pretty much the only colours I'm not interested in are grey, beige, and white.

2) Since I'm doing art I don't have a story as such, but I do have an idea. Which involves the Black Parade...

1. Blue! I like all colours, but especially blue.


2. I don't knowwwwww ;v;. As of right now, unless sudden lightning inspiration, it's between two.
a) An origin story for the little girl in the killjoys 'verse that I've been working on for seven hunDRED YEARS. There's four parts w/ the last part being the only one that actually involves the Fabulous Killjoys, and it's, fucking, more than 100k now alltogether. I could maybe finish Pt 4 and then post the others in a Star Wars-esque inside out order? Pt 4 is the only part I haven't finished writing yet but I'm sure the others are in need of a massive editing overhaul and hhhhhhhhh.

b) Straight-up Peterick high fantasy AU. Patrick is a knight who rides a gryphon (her name is Epona and they are friends), Pete is a slightly insufferable duke who keeps getting into trouble that Patrick begrudgingly rescues him from, they fall in love. I actually have the first chapter up already on AO3 but I could take that down & re-wrangle it, etc. I do like the story and I could finish it a lot easier, but tbh I'm a little less attached to it than I am to (a).

Party timeeee \o/

1) I love all colors??? But I tend to have a bias towards my hair, so right now it's pink/red! But seriously, all colors are good.

2)I have just over 6k written for a supernatural AU? Basically, a clusterfuck of bands all together in the 'Little Less Sixteen Candles...' music video. You've got the vampire hunting group of FOB, a more well trained hunting group of MCR, an actual coven of vampires that is MSI, and other characters in the mix. I've been plotting it for over eight months, and it's got a lot of less popular ships in it. If I'm too busy to create an entirely new fic, I'll just add more to that, because I'm doing that anyways.

But I've got this idea for a high fantasy AU, mostly following MCR, where Gerard and Mikey are princes, and Ray's a knight, and Frank's a criminal. That one would have a lot more symbolism throughout it, but I don't know how/if I'd incorporate other bands into it.

Then, I had the idea of writing a fic based on the reincarnated lives of two soulmates. Meeting with each other and living their lives, or meeting as enemies, having one die too soon, have another engaged to someone else. It could have some interesting Period time scenes, but it might come off as fragmented without an overarching story. I dunno yet!

1. i like blues and purples, but indigo, mint, teal and turquoise are my favourite colours. black too, if that counts.

2. my story has a lot of supernatural themes, not in the vampires/werewolves sense but more demon summoning and psychics. I always liked the idea of angels, demons and guardian spirits so I added that too. The story is Frerard for the most part, and it's mostly Frank-centric. There's lots of sub-plots and intertwined stories too. It's basically a supernatural!bandom AU, haha.

My favorite colors are purple and yellow. I love this time of year because the grass isn't quite long enough to mow yet so we have beautiful purple and yellow wildflowers in my yard (dandelions and purple clover) that are so pretty!

I am telling an established relationship story about Frank and Gerard.
In the story, they both have angst and feelings of inadequacy when it comes to themselves and their competencies and their art. They are also both insecure in their relationship with each other. They love each other very much, but they each have latent feelings of not being good enough for the other that they don't want to openly face up to.
In order to deal with these difficult emotions, they both have vices that they use as an escape from their frustrating feelings about themselves, each other, and their relationship. Their vices are slowly destroying them both as individuals and their relationship is suffering.
The story is going to look at how they might be able to help each stop relying on these vices so much and start being more honest and open with each other while also becoming more confident in themselves.
It's pretty messy.
But they sure do love each other a lot. They will manage to work it out in the end but it won't be easy.
